Hello @seveaux, and nice to Musicoin you!
I see your point, but I tend to think that it’s more a question of personal ethics than one based on the Musicoin platform configuration. My 5 months-long journey through this ecosystem allowed me to discover hundreds of excellent compositors, and to send them what I esteem to have been around 2,500 $MUSIC, all based on their artistic quality, not on previous friendship relations.
On the other hand, our process here consists in building day after day a SOCIAL network, which by definition relies on weaving solidarious and like-minded ties with other artists and listeners. Therefore is it natural - and even more: desirable - than when I log in on Musicoin, apart from the recently registered artists (that I use to listen to first), Ithe second “pool” of tunes I head towards are the ones of artists I’ve learnt to know here, and who actually became friends.
Thus, beyond this particular “Artist of the Week” contest, which is important but remains a secundary event if you look at the whole Musicoin ecosystem daily activity, I’m not sure how you envision a music-promoting and retributing platform WITHOUT a huge human and affective / social / even family-driven support to each and any one of the artists?
I’m interested in knowing how in Choon they disconnect the music worth from the human networks (our “real life” friends, music teachers, fathers,) the music is born in?
I’d really appreciate if you could open a specific Forum theme about it, for us to discuss it thoroughly.
